Posted: Updated:

Superintendent of Public Instruction Denis Juneau announced today that Montana 8th graders ranked high above the international level in Science and Math. This is a first-of-its-kind comparison of achievement on the United States with student performance in 47 countries and jurisdictions. The study by the National Center for Education Statistics connects Math and Science scores of American students from 2011 to trends in International Mathematics and Science study.

"We know the job skills of tomorrow are really going to be focused in Science technology, engineering, and Math and for our Montana students to be performing this well already they are going to get the jobs in the future and they are going to be internationally competitive on a global scale." says Denise Juneau, Superintendent of Montana's Office of Public Instruction.

Montana's scores were higher than 43 countries and systems, only Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan scored higher than Montana's students. Montana was ranked 7th among states, and 12th among all states and 50 countries.
